  • Post PASS Summit 2016 Resolutions - Followup

    Last year I started a new tradition for myself that will last until I specifically retire from the SQL Server community, something that I practically promise isn't coming in next year's resolutions. As this is the end of the PASS year, with the Summit coming up next week, it is time to see how I did with regards to what I said I would do. I didn't ...

  • Where have I been? Where will I be?

    SQL Saturday Orlando has been postponed. I won't be able to make it for the make up day, so that part of this blog has changed. Not the part about me loving the folks down there. They are still awesome!  I again have not blogged so much that I don't show up in the list on SQLBlog.com, but it is about time to start blogging again. Where ...

  • Just over a week until SQL Saturday Atlanta

    I am looking forward to being both a speaker and an attendee at this year's SQL Saturday in Atlanta (it is number 521… wow). Don't know what SQL Saturday is? (I doubt that if you are reading this blog, but if so, click here quickly my friend). My topic this year is concurrency: Let Me Finish... Isolating Write Operations OLTP databases can be ...

  • Presenting on Concurrency Three Times This Month…Though Not Concurrently

    Tomorrow night, March 15, I will be at the Hampton Roads SQL Server User Group’s March meeting, then at SQL Saturday Richmond on Saturday the 19th, then finally back at home on the 25th for my home user group in Nashville (which I haven’t seen much of this year) to present a presentation that I am pretty fond of after having done it once before in ...

  • How Sure Are You of Your PASS Summit Abstract?

    You know who you are. You have a presentation idea that has been percolating since last October. You have asked friends and coworkers if it is a good idea. You may have presented it at 10 SQL Saturdays to thunderous appreciation. You may have even tried to submit last year but was turned down.  You have this abstract written and may have even ...

  • [Speaking] SQL Intersection - April in Orlando

    This coming April 16 - 20, the Spring 2016 SQL Intersection conference will be held at the Walt Disney World Swan hotel, and I'll be presenting two sessions this year.Get Near Realtime ETL with Service Broker Most of the time you’ll see ETL being done with a tool such as SSIS, but what if you need near-realtime reporting? You need to get the ...

  • SQL Saturday 489 Tampa-“How to Design a Relational Database” Precon

    On February 26, I will be doing my "How to Design a Relational Database" pre-conference session in Tampa, FL.  You can see the abstract here if you are interested, and you can sign up there too, naturally.

  • Post PASS Summit Resolutions

    Many years I have tried early in the year to list a set of “New Year’s Resolutions” but one thing I have noted every year is it isn’t New Year’s Day that is the defining part of my year, but rather it is the PASS Summit that defines my year. Usually, by the time the end of October rolls around, I am pretty spent. The summer has ended, and all of ...

  • Thank *you* for my SQL Server MVP Award…

    Today, I was awarded (at least) one more time with the Microsoft MVP Award. This makes 12 years, and with this, my 11th renewal, I have yet to feel like it is something I can take for granted (you don’t want to be around me the last week of September!). It has been a great time so far, and I have no idea how many years I will be back (admittedly, ...

  • Heading to Orlando for SQL Saturday again this year

    Last year, I attended SQL Saturday Orlando again after missing a few years (I did my first database design precon there a few years back). I love the way they run their event, and as speakers, we did some fun stuff like being the ones that served lunch to the attendees. This year, I wasn’t sure if I had a chance to go, because I had scheduled a ...
